Are Single/divorced mothers more likely to be narcissists?
Think about it. Single/divorced mothers......
-have children so they can have a mini-me. They have these kids so the kids will be their narc supply and so they themselves will fit in with their peers. They brainwash their kids and mold them into mini-me's, teaching them their beliefs, likes, what to say, etc. and they are right and everyone else is wrong.
-they think their child is "special" and refuse to see reality. When the child misbehaves there's always an excuse. Nothing is ever their child's fault.It is never the fact that the kid might not be the best behaved at that time. It is never their fault.
-they use their children for attention, companionship, to fit their needs, whatever they are at the moment. This is unhealthy. You will often find they do not have good boundaries with their kids, especially as they get older.
-there's a reason the relationship with the child's father did not work out. Ask him. It most liking has to do with her inability to get along with a partner because she is very selfish, immature, has rage issues and her husband will not just ignore these behaviors like her kid's will.
-you will rarely find them adopting a child unless they are having issues with conceiving then they will use adoption as their second, but less preferred, choice. They want to have their own and would prefer it that way. It feeds their ego. So even if they adopt they will conitnue to try their best to have their own child with their own DNA.
-they get into a relationships based on what a man can provide for them. These relationships are one sided and they don't even give a third of what the other person puts into the relationship. It is all about them. They are quick to discard this man if he brings it up or slips up. They are incapable of true love and see relationships completely as what they can get out of them.
I do believe these typs of women seek out codependents to use in their relationships.
